With Wentz out and Foles in, many discounted the Eagles in their game against the Falcons tonight, including the oddsmakers who make the Eagles the underdog against the No. 6 seed. "We blocked it out".
Matt Ryan's final pass sailed over Julio Jones's head in the end zone, assuring the Eagles' first playoff victory since the 2008 season.
"To be honest I feel like a played poorly".
Thanks to Foles doing just enough to get by on offense after completing 23 of 30 passes for 246 yards with no turnovers, Philadelphia was able to prove all of the doubters wrong by hanging on for the tough win against Atlanta to advance to the NFC Championship to face the victor of Sunday's game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings. "That was it. Our team never wavered, defense did an awesome job, special teams thats just been the story this year is that we just all stuck together".
"It's a play we've had in our arsenal, but never got to it", Pederson said. They will not get the opportunity to atone for it, though Ryan got them close at the end. "We kept working, kept grinding, had faith in one another". "We just fell a little bit short". It's a team that has had an uncanny way of finding a way to win, and that was the case again this time. We believe in him and he believes in us and that's our approach. They came out committed to a balanced attack on their first drive. More than that, he was the team's leader as usual.
"It was tough, but the game was on the line, " Freeman said. "We pulled him up and made him make a bad throw to finish the game". Of course, the Eagles missed the extra-point try.
"To be here with these guys with where I was is an awesome feeling", Elliott said. Both went down in the same game against the Redskins and the Eagles still won that game, 34-24. "It's a special, special feeling to be moving on into the NFC championship game round".
Foles overcame a slow start to set up a touchdown for Blount from one yard on a fearless fourth down play in the second quarter to give the Eagles a 6-3 lead.
The fine wine that is Matt Bryant cashed in the Falcons' first drive with a 33-yard field goal. The score was set up by the Eagles' second turnover as Bryan Braman touched the ball following a punt, putting Atlanta at the Philadelphia 18-yard-line to start the possession. Three plays later, after Foles hit Alshon Jeffery for a 15-yard gain that took four seconds when there were only five seconds remaining in the half, Jake Elliott drilled a 53-yard field goal to trim the deficit to one point. LeGarrette Blount had nine carries for just 19 yards but scored the Eagles' only touchdown and the offensive and defensive lines played phenomenally. Two plays later, Foles scooped up a botched handoff and was downed at the 1. But Ajayi fumbled on the next play with Keanu Neal recovering.
